Engineering Maintenance in Context to Human body

Maintenance Strategy

Technique Needed

Compared with Human Body

Proactive Maintenance Monitoring and correction of failing
root cause e.g. contamination
Cholesterol and Blood Pressure monitoring with diet control
Predictive Maintenance Monitoring of vibration, heat,
alignment, wear debris
Detection of heart disease using ECG or ultrasonic
Preventive Maintenance Periodic component replacement By-pass or transparent surgery

(a) Energy Monitoring and Saving Programs.
(b) Improving Indoor Air Quality (IAQ):
  • Indoor air quality (IAQ) is a term referring to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants.
Common air pollutants

Carbon dioxide (CO2):
  • OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) limits CO2 concentration in the workplace to 5,000 ppm for prolonged periods, and 35,000 ppm for 15 minutes.

Carbon monoxide (CO):
  • According to the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH), the time-weighted average (TWA) limit for carbon monoxide (630-08-0) is 25 ppm.
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs):
  • VOCs emitted by paints, cleaning materials, pesticides, building materials, furnishings, office equipment such as printers and permanent markers lead to adverse health effects. Concentrations of many VOCs are consistently higher indoors (up to ten times higher) than outdoors.
  • Radon, invisible gas can be found beneath buildings in rock formations and in certain building materials. It is a serious hazard for indoor air responsible for thousands of deaths from lung cancer each year.
Indoor Air can be improved by the following methods:
Indoor plants
  • Indoor plants and the medium they are grown in can reduce components of indoor air pollution, particularly volatile organic compounds (VOC) such as benzene, toluene, and xylene. Plants also remove CO2, which is Co-related with lower work performance. However presence of plants indoors has also been associated with higher humidity & airborne fungal concentrations.
  • Controlled ventilation can reduce energy consumption while maintaining adequate air quality. High frequency of indoor air turnover with outside air helps ensure air quality. For e.g. in U.K. classrooms are mandated unit of 2.5 outdoor air changes/ hr. In halls, ventilation should be sufficient to limit CO2 to 1,500 ppm.
  • Commercial buildings are often kept under slightly-positive air pressure relative to the outdoors to reduce infiltration. Limiting infiltration helps with moisture management and humidity control.
c). Thermographic Analysis of Equipment:
Helps find deterioration, i.e., higher temperature components prior to their failure in..
  • Motors
  • Bearings
  • Couplings
  • Belts and sheaves
  • Electrical (most common utilization of thermography) etc
d) Building Audit/Electrical Safety Audit (ESA)
The complete program is divided into 3 parts:
  • Pre Audit
  • Audit
  • Post Audit
e) Fire Fighting Equipment Maintenance
(f) Fire Safety Drills
(g) Annual basic service of firefighting equipment includes:
  • Safety clip and indicating devices are inspected to find out whether the fire extinguisher has been operated.
  • Pressure indicating devices on stored pressure extinguishers are checked to see if the pressure limits are within normal ranges.
  • The body of the fire equipment including the hose, horn and nozzle are examined for corrosion, dents or damage.
  • The equipment is weighed for loss of contents.
  • Operating instructions are verified for accuracy and legibility.
  • 6) Gas cartridges in appropriate extinguishers are inspected.
